Psalms Chapter 22
22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from
helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
22:2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the
night season, and am not silent.
22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver
22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and
were not confounded.
22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the
22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip,
they shake the head, saying,
22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver
him, seeing he delighted in him.
22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me
hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my
22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to
22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me
22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my
heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to
my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have
inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to
22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the
22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the
horns of the unicorns.
22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the
congregation will I praise thee.
22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob,
glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the
afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto
him, he heard.
22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay
my vows before them that fear him.
22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD
that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:
and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the
22:29 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they
that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive
his own soul.
22:30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a
22:31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people
that shall be born, that he hath done this.
